something worthwhile. That’s why officials [leaders] must have a good reputation
and be faithful in marriage. They must be self-controlled, sensible, well-behaved,
friendly to strangers, and able to teach. They must not be heavy drinkers or troublemakers.
Instead, they must be kind and gentle and not love money…. Those who
serve well as officers will earn a good reputation and will be highly respected for
their faith in Christ Jesus.” (I Timothy 3:1-3, 13, CEV)
Leadership in the church is a responsibility and not a right. In the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) it is extended to those who come under the authority of the church’s teaching as set forth in the Bible and The Book of Confessions. It has always been a demanding calling. Today, the gap between Christian and societal/cultural values makes this calling particularly challenging. As we serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in leadership, we model what we really believe about our faith. Both our beliefs and our actions are critical to the way we serve Christ and demonstrate Church leadership.
